Absolute Alpine is a family business and our team is really important to us - click here to see more about what we are looking for.

The Ourses - The Grande Ourse & The Petite Ourse

During summer we offer a variety of holidays to our customers. Working in the summer will mean looking after a mixture of catered and self-catered guests in addition to those on our dedicated walking holidays. Ideally, the people that we are looking to recruit over the summer would continue to work with us through the winter and beyond.

Chalet Manager/Chalet Chef (ideally a couple)

In addition to being a point of contact for guests and being responsible for delivering the high standards in the chalets, you will be required to manage the operational elements of the chalets (e.g. checking laundry in and out, greeting guests and co-ordinating changeovers).

The chalet manager responsibilities include:

Chalet Chef

The chalet chef role over the summer involves preparing food for our catered guests. In addition to breakfast and three-course evening meals, you will need to bake cakes and treats for afternoon tea. Our food is something that helps us stand out in the crowd and we set high standards in what we think chalet food should be like.

Responsibilities for our chalet chef include:
